Most Americans unaware ObamaCare

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Sam Baker

Most Americans don´t know that ObamaCare´s new insurance marketplaces are set to open next week, according to a new poll from the Kaiser Family Foundation. In Kaiser´s latest tracking poll, 64 percent of respondents didn´t know when the law´s new insurance marketplaces open. Fifteen percent knew the correct date, Oct. 1, while another 20 percent chose specific but incorrect dates. (Snip) The poll found even less awareness of the new marketplaces among the uninsured Americans who stand to benefit most from the healthcare law. Among uninsured respondents, 74 percent did not know when the exchanges launch, compared with 12 percent

After shamelessly promoting this travesty for 2 years, they still think the only reason we don´t want it is because we don´t understand it. No, they don´t understand the meaning of the word NO. A crap sandwich is still a crap sandwich no matter how much you promote, rename, and market it. And they think we´re the stupid ones.

Maybe the reason a lot of people aren´t up to speed about what´s heading their way is because they´re so busy trying to find work or putting so much time and energy into the 2 or 3 part time jobs they have.

Most Americans have no idea what the "launch" of Obamacare means at all let alone what it means to them. And the news reporting that is all over the map is not helping. And that is probably because Obie himself doesn´t know WTH it means.

We all know it is BAD.

The annual material from our HMO arrived this week. I looked at that big envelope like it was a live grenade. But everything looked pretty much the same as last year with a few small copay increases on diagnostic tests and prescription drugs.

So. What next? Does anyone really know?

Rejecting the government in this new role, I have steadfastly ignored all the Obamacare argument since it got rammed through by Democrat authoritarianism.

The government IS NOT my keeper. Trying to take that role in my life squeezes me out of health care, entirely. Thanks to Obamacare, the country has one less person receiving health care from now on.

Obama, Reid, and Pelosi can all go have intimate amorous encounters with rabid wolverines as far as I´m concerned. Or they can ______ themselves. Either way is okay by me. (If they choose the latter, they might consult with Patrick Leahy for how-to tips.)

And I would wager that the higher percentage of idiots not knowing are Obama supporters.
Democrats have cultivated a culture of entitlements, subsidies and stupidity to get elected. In one way or another, they have purchased every vote they get by running up the national debt or by committing States to retirement packages they can´t pay.
It is no wonder Obama supporters have no clue when ObamaCare begins... why should they? They voted for a Dear Leader that promised them a life without work, responsibility or accountability, the Won who vowed to take care of them so they wouldn´t have to take care of themselves. They are useless idiots that are destroying America, but the Democrat Party loves them.
If Democrats couldn´t borrow money by adding to the national or state debt, they´d never get elected. And if Americans had any sense of liberty and freedom and loyalty to their nation, they wouldn´t have let themselves be so vulnerable and manipulated by such an evil party. But the media has also done a good job at making people brain dead.

After a few months Americans will be stunned; most will feel totally unable to change a thing; most will go into a new apathy and acceptance; blame will be directed at the Tea Party, hurricanes, ice storms, W and the GOP by the media propagandandists (as usual); the GOP will be giddy with delight over the new political power capabilities along with the Dems who provided it, but with furrowed brows will act "concerned" while doing ZERO about any of it. The House will stay slightly Republican in 2014, the Senate will stay the same and Hillary will still be elected in 2016 while we continue to afterburn into debt and eventual national bankruptcy while the deception continues. Gosh, how do I know that?

If you oppose Ohbombah Care, you are a heartless racist extortionist terrorist that holds a gun to the head of government and the president and are holding the American people hostage. Oh yes, it launches next week. What´s really launching is the collapse of the US economy, a spiraling out of control federal debt and an ever increasing amount of principle and interest that gets paid to the point of economic collapse and a bankrupt country. Fundamental transformation on an unimaginable scale. Most people polls find are unaware, can careless, and frankly my dear don´t give a g-damn either. We are so doomed. Meanwhile Daffy Duckbama demonizes Republicans kisses up to Iranian terrorists and plans his next round of golf and lavish vacations like no body´s business. Tee it up sir, you´re on ´er your honor.

There are two schools of thought regarding the implementing of this nightmare onto the American people.
One is to try to delay the individual mandate for a year to try to fix it. The second is to let it move forward now. The first choice gives the Democrats cover for 2014 and is much too nice gesture to give them. The second gives the Republicans the edge to prove what a mess this law is. By this time next year, the common folk of this nation will have figured out they´ve been totally screwed by their government representative who voted for this.
Then there are those who say once something is in place we can never undo it. Well, they said that about us defeating the British too. Nothing is impossible when the people stand united for something.
I say bring on the train wreck and let the Democrats own it.

I have three children all married and under the age of forty. Everybody has a full day at work. They all vote conservative. Two families have children who are school aged. They are busy. They don´t have time to stay informed. I have been making comments for two years about how Obamacare may effect their lifestyles, but just like everybody else they won´t pay attention until it changes their lives. I hope and pray it doesn´t, but I think the rates will shock them in the near future.

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I´ve gotta tell, another little thing about Nelson Mandela. Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of

The U.S. federal health insurance website HealthCare.gov, which has had technology problems since its October 1 launch, is now experiencing errors in transmitting applications about 10 percent of the time, a government spokeswoman said on Friday. The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites. "We believe nine of 10 transactions are being successfully transmitted," the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, spokeswoman Julie Bataille said at a news briefing.

To fully appreciate what former South African president Nelson Mandela was able to accomplish, it is necessary to hearken back to the South Africa he found when he emerged from prison in 1990, and what the country was like in those critical four years between his release and his election to the presidency in 1994. Put simply, South Africa was a violent, dangerous and heavily-armed place teetering precariously on the edge of an all-out race war. And in the early 1990s, it was entirely unclear which way the country would go. On one side, embittered white rejectionists were refusing to

Nelson Mandela was the most famous black man in history. He transcended race barriers to become an exemplar of human generosity of spirit. His towering personality made possible the peaceful transfer of power in South Africa from white minority to black majority rule. If he was less effective as president of his country than he had been as the symbol of resistance to apartheid, he demonstrated statesmanship unmatched in Africa. He inspired love as much as respect, and became regarded by hundreds of millions of people as a secular saint. More was asked of him, and sometimes claimed for him,

Former South African President Nelson Mandela has died at age 95 of complications from a recurring lung infection. The anti-apartheid leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate was a beloved figure around the world, a symbol of reconciliation from a country with a brutal history of racism. Mandela was released from prison in 1990 after nearly 30 years for plotting to overthrow South Africa´s apartheid government. In 1994, in a historic election, he became the nation´s first black leader. Mandela stepped down in 1999 after a single term and retired from political and public life.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery."

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one
